'Brown Out' The gamble builds...
William Hill have slashed their odds for Gordon Brown to be out of office as PM by Wednesday from 4/7 to 1/5 as rumours grow that the Tory-Lib Dem deal is imminent.
'Punters only want to bet that Gordon will be gone before Wednesday and the odds have collapsed in the last two hours' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe. Hills offer 10/3 that he will still be PM on Wednesday.
David Miliband is now odds-on favourite to suceed Gordon Brown as Labour Leader with William Hill who make him 4/6 and also offer 8/1 Darling; 9/1 Johnson; 11/1 Balls; Ed Miliband; 12 Burnham.
